CrossTalk: Fat Tax
Is a ‘Fat Tax’ on the way?

If you had to pay 17.5% extra every time you bought cheese, butter or other high-fat foods, would it put you off buying them? Because this could be the future if the Food Standards Agency has its way.

Some research has claimed a fat tax could save up to3,000 lives per year.
